SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ECONOMIC INDICATORS 



JANUARY, 1957

production. Non-durables declined again due mainly to a reduction in the manufacture of food and 
beverages.

"'Accrued net income of [arm operators from farm production. The seasonally adjusted data include an arbitrary smoothing of crop production, standard seasonal 
adjustments for live-stock items and a seasonal adjustment for earnings of the Canadian Wheat Board. Because of the arbitrary elements too precise an interpretation 
should not be given the seasonally adjusted figures for this item. 

<*)This item differs from column 4, bottom of page 6, in that it excludes undistributed earnings (and the inventory valuation adjustment) of the Canadian 
Wheat Board. Source: Quarterly Reports; National Accounts, Income and Expenditure, D.B.S.

•Construction of dwelling units. 

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgage

"'The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and as of 195C, stands at 901, minor revision still being required in the table, due to the non-receipt 
of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Aqtual operations normally follow the granting of permits 
but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the 
completion of the operation.

<»In the upper section of this table, the annual statistics prior to 1955 embrace all steam railways, while monthly averages for 1955 and monthly data refer to 
railways with annual operating revenues of $500,000 or over. "'Revised series. The Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, and Quebec North Shore and Labrador 

and Pacific Great Eastern railways now use the "Uniform Classification of Accounts for Common Carriers by Railway". The 17 remaining railways included in these 
statistics do not currently use the " Uniform Classification", but will be required to do so as from January 1, 1957. "Operating income equals operating revenues 

less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent of equipment and joint facilities. < 4 >The 1956 figures are not strictly comparable with previous years, due 

to the addition, in January, of 5 railways and the deletion of one. On a comparable basis, revenue tons carried in August 1955 would have been 17,600,000, revenue tons 
carried one mile 5,916 million, revenue passengers carried still 2-5 million and revenue passengers carried one mile 322 million. "'Pacific Great Eastern Railway

Note. — This series gives total new settled-for ordinary insurance sales in Canada, exclusive of revivals, increases, dividend additions, reinsurance acquired and 
pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 31 companies operating in Canada representing 86 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. 

'"The Canada totals for most months in 1954 and 1955 do not correspond to the sum of the provincial totals as revisions applied to the national total are not yet 
available for the provinces. The Canada totals are comparable for these two years. Provincial monthly totals for 1955, however, are not comparable with those for 
1954 due to changes by several companies in the manner of reporting new business. For 1956, the Canadian and provincial figures are comparable with each other, but are 
not strictly comparable with previous years. On a comparable basis the Canada total in November 1956 was 25% above that of November 1955. The annual figures for 
Canada and the provinces are consistent, although the 1955 data are still preliminary. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada, Life Insurance

Note. — The definition of profits before taxes is based mainly on the accounting definitions used by corporations. However, depletion charges are added back 
to net profits while Canadian dividends received are excluded from profits in order to avoid duplication. The term "profits" as used here means the total profits of all 
companies earning profits less the losses of all companies incurring losses. Estimates are based on profits as reported by a sample of all companies incorporated in Canada 
(excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives). 

(1 > Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Construction. < 2 > Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Tobacco, 

Rubber, Leather, Non-Metallic minerals, Petroleum and Coal and Miscellaneous Manufacturing Industries. ("Includes Printing and Publishing and Allied Industries.

PRIVATE AND PUBLIC INVESTMENT IN CANADA - OUTLOOK 1957 



The capital expenditure intentions of business, 
institutions and governments and of individuals for 
housing indicate an intended outlay of $8.5 billion 
in the current year. If realized, this programme would 
represent an increase of 8 per cent over the $7.9 
billion devoted to capital investment in 1956 when 
capital outlays were the highest ever recorded.. To 
the extent that the prices of capital goods at the 
end of 1956 were moderately higher than the average 
for the year, the increase in the volume of invest- 
ment in prospect for 1957 would be lower than the 
value figures indicate. 

The anticipated increase in capital spending 
in 1957 compares with increases in terms of volume 
of 17 per cent in 1956 and 9 per cent in 1955; it 
represents a very moderate increase over the rate 
of capital expenditures achieved in the latter half 
of 1956. The marked slowing down in the rate of 
increase is largely accounted for by the expected 
decline in housing. It is estimated that housing will

decline some 18 per cent in value and some 22 per 
cent in volume below the level of 1956. Expendi- 
tures on non-residential construction and on machin- 
ery and equipment are expected to be higher by 16 
and 13 per cent respectively in value terms; this 
compares with gains of 32 per cent and 29 per cent 
in 1956. 

It may be noted that money outlays in 1956 fell 
a little below intentions as expressed at mid-year, 
the short- fall being somewhat greater in volume 
terms when the rise in the prices of investment 
goods is taken into account. Shortages of labour 
and certain materials appear to have been the prin- 
cipal factors responsible for the short-fall. 

In view of the anticipated decline in housing, 
construction is expected to account for a somewhat 
smaller, and machinery and equipment a somewhat 
larger, share of the total programme in 1957. If 
realized, expenditures on construction would involve 
a slight increase (3 per cent) and expenditures on 
machinery and equipment a moderate increase (7 per 
cent) over the rates prevailing in the latter half of 
1956. It may be noted that projects of an engineering 
nature are expected to bulk larger this year than 
last, which implies relatively less on-site employ- 
ment. 



The Investment Programme by Sectors 

The outstanding feature of the investment 
programme for 1957 is the continued rapid expansion 
of capital outlays by the utilities. The increase 
expected is 34 per cent, following a 48 per cent 
increase in 1956. The intended level of outlays by 
the utilities would represent some 25 per cent of 
the total programme. The magnitude of the increment 
reflects accelerated activity in the construction of 
gas and oil pipelines, hydro-electric installations 
and the St. Lawrence Seaway. It may be noted that 
outlays for such major projects as the St. Lav/rence 
Seaway and the Trans-Canada Pipeline are expected 
to reach their peak in the current year. The antici- 
pated upward trend is strongly re-inforced by the 
continued expansion in capital outlays in the com- 
munications industry and by an increase in the 
acquisition of equipment by the railways and air 
lines. 

The increase in the outlays planned by manu- 
facturing industries is not so broadly based as in 
1956. Of the 17 groups into which manufacturing 
is classified, 12 added to their capital outlays in 

1956, compared with 10 which intend to do so in 

1957. A major expansion in capital outlays is 
expected in non-ferrous metal proaucts and a sub- 



stantial increase in iron and steel products. Capital 
outlays in chemicals are also expected to rise but 
not on the same scale as in some previous years. 
A further expansion in outlays is anticipated in 
electrical apparatus and supplies and in transporta- 
tion equipment. These increases are expected to be 
partially offset by lower outlays in non-metallic 
mineral products, wood products, paper products 
and some other industries. 



Trade, financial and commercial services expect 
to raise their capital outlays substantially above 
the record level of 1956, with larger outlays antici- 
pated by each of the three groups. A somewhat 
smaller rate of increase is expected in institutional 
services, larger outlays for hospitals being the most 
important element in the increase. Outlays for 
schools are expected to be only, slightly higher than 
in the two preceding years.

It is anticipated that capital expenditures by 
government departments will also be higher, a 
decline in federal outlays being more than offset 
by a minor increase in provincial outlays and a 
substantial increase at the municipal level. In- 
creased expenditures for through roads in some 
metropolitan areas account in part for the antici- 
pated rise in municipal outlays. 

It is estimated tiiat investment in agriculture 
and fishing will continue to rise. In forestry, mining 



and construction, intended outlays are below the 
record levels of 1956. 

Outlays for housing are expected to undergo a 
major decline. While 127,000 units were started in 
1956, the rate of starts began to fall sharply in the 
second quarter and had fallen to 95,000 at the turn 
of the year, on a seasonally adjusted basis. The 
very high rate of starts in the latter part of 1955 
contributed to the record 136,000 completions in

1956, with the result that the value of investment 
in housing was slightly higher than in the previous 
yedr. The estimate for investment in housing in 
1957 assumes that starts will remain at the season- 
ally adjusted rate of the end of 1956 and that about 
110,000 units will be completed, which would in- 
volve a 22 per cent reduction in volume. The antici- 
pated decline in housing is related to the higher 
cost and more limited availability of mortgage funds 
and to the shortage of serviced land in some local- 
ities. It is also possible that demand may have 
eased, following the high rate of building in the 
two previous years. 

The Outlook 7957 in Relation to Post-V/ar Trends in 
Capital Investment 

The expansion of capital investment in the 
post-war period lias three main phases. In the first 
post-war years accumulated demand at home and 
abroad providea the stimulus for a rapid expansion 
in capital outlays. In this period the emphasis fell 
on consumer goods, agriculture and housing. The 
second phase was initiated after the outbreak of 
war in Korea in inia-1950 had created new demands 
on the economy, shifting the emphasis in the invest- 
ment programme towards defence and aefence- 
supporting activities. The third phase of rapid 
expansion, following the short-lived North American 
recession of 1953-54, was related to the high and 
rising levels of activity in Canada's principal 
foreign markets. The strength of foreign demand 
encouraged heavy capital outlays in traditional 
export industries. Two persistent underlying in- 
fluences making for the expansion of investment

during the post-war period may be identified: a 
world environment which favoured the development 
of new -and known resources and a rapid growth and 
redistribution of population which created a need 
for additional social capital of all kinds. The 
strength of expansionary forces is demonstrated by 
the fact that capital outlays as a percentage of 
current dollar Gross National Product rose from 18.1 
in 1947 to 26.6 in 1956. 

The interplay of forces making for an expansion 
in capital outlays is particularly evident in the 
utilities sector. It became clear shortly after the 
war ended that their facilities were inadequate to 
support the level of activity to which the economy 
was moving. Subsequently, the discovery of new 
resources, oil being the conspicuous example, and 
the expansion of such industries as non-ferrous 
metals and pulp and paper, required heavy capital 
outlays on the utilities related thereto. Accordingly 
the utilities have absorbed a growing share of the 
total programme. 

The railways added to motive power and rolling 
stock and constructed additional yard and siding 
track and extensions serving industrial sites, as 
well as building new lines to link newly developing 
areas with existing settlement. Capital outlays by 
the railways have fluctuated considerably, falling 
sharply in 1950 and again in 1954 and 1955. The 



capital outlays of central electric stations advanced 
without interruption until 1953 and 1954 when some 
major projects were moving to completion. A major 
advance in outlays took place in 1956 and is 
expected to continue in 1957. The inception of work 
on the St. Lawrence Seaway late in 1954 involved 
the rapid growth of capital expenditures on water 
transport, while the construction of pipelines for 
the transmission of oil and gas has made this the 
most rapidly growing element in the whole utilities 
programme. The expansion of outlays in the com- 
munications industry has been a more continuous 
process than in the other major utilities. The level 
of outlays anticipated in 1957 involves a rate of 
increase substantially higher than in most post-war 
/ears. 

A notable feature of the post-war capital 
expenditure programme in manufacturing is the 
relatively small advance in outlays in the consumer 
soft goods industries 1 . Whereas these industries 
in the first post-war years -accounted for about 30 
per cent of all capital outlays in manufacturing, by 
1956 this proportion had fallen to 15 per cent, the 
same percentage as in 1952 when the Korean war 
was influencing the pattern of expansion.

In the segment of manufacturing characterized 
by the rapid expansion of capital outlays, two 
developments in recent years are outstanding - the 
impressive additions to capacity in the traditional 
export industries, forest products and non-ferrous 
metal products, and the equally impressive growth 
in capital outlays in two basic industries, iron and 
steel and chemicals. Other developments that may 
be noted are the expansion in capital outlays in 
non-metallic mineral products and in the petroleum 
industry. In non-ferrous metal products, and to a 
much lesser extent in iron and steel, anticipated 
outlays in 1957 represent an advance from previous 
peaks. 

Capital outlays by the mining industry have 
risen without interruption in every year since the 
war and have tended to represent a larger share of 
the total programme. Intended outlays in 1957 are 
at about the same level as in 1956. Capital expendi- 
tures in agriculture and fishing rose rapidly in the 
early post-war period as cumulative replacement 
needs were being met, reaching their peak in 1952. 
Intended outlays in 1957, although higher than in 
1956, are below those of some earlier years. No 
clearly discernible trend through time is apparent 
in the course of capital expenditures in forestry 
and construction. In both industries such outlays 
were at a post-war peak in 1956 but are expected 
to be substantially lower in the current year. 

The growth and redistribution of population in 
a situation of rising real incomes has made for a 
substantial advance in capital outlays in trade, 
financial, commercial and institutional services. 



The advance has been uneven, being relatively large 
when expansion elsewhere was slowing down. This 
tendency is probably accounted for by the difficulty 
some of the services experience in competing for 
scarce labour and materials. In addition, some of 
them were accorded a low priority when resources 
were being channelled into more essential uses, for 
example, following the outbreak of war in Korea. 
The capital outlays anticipated in 1957 represent 
an increase of 19 per cent, a rate of increase only 
exceeded in 1953, 1950 and the immediate post-war 
years. 

Capital outlays by government departments 
have represented about the same proportion of the 
total programme, except in the immediate post 
Korean period when Federal expenditures related 
to defence were rising steeply. 

Investment in housing was at a high level and 
represented from 21 to 25 per cent of the total 
investment programme in the period 1946 to 1950. 
These high rates of building reflected accumulated 
needs backed by accumulated savings, high rates of 
family formation and favourable terms of financing. 
With the firming of interest rates in 1951 and renew- 
ed scarcities of labour and materials, investment in 
housing declined in 1951 and 1952. New legislation 
in 1954, which broadened the mortgage market, 
strongly reinforced the upward trend in house-build- 
ing activity that had begun in 1953. During the 
course of 1956, difficulties in financing again began 
to have a restraining effect on house-building activi- 
ty while the shortage of serviced land in some 
localities was a further complicating factor.

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgaj 
and Housing Corporation. All Metropolitan Areas and Urban Centres with a population of 5,000 or more are enumerated completely. Approximately 400 sample area 
lying outside these municipalities were also chosen for complete enumeration; in June, 1955, the number of sample areas was increased to nearly 800.

(1) The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and as of 1956, stands at 901, minor revision still being required in the table, due to the non-receipt 
of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits 
but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the 
completion of the operation.

<"In the upper section of this table, the annual statistics prior to 1955 embrace all steam railways, while monthly averages for 1955 and monthly data refer to 
railways with annual operating revenues of $500,000 or over. ("Revised series. The Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, and Quebec North Shore and Labrador 

and Pacific Great Eastern railways now use the " Uniform Classification of Accounts for Common Carriers by Railway". The 17 remaining railways included in these 
statistics do not currently use the "Uniform Classification", but will be required to do so as from January 1, 1957. ("Operating income equals operating revenues 

less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent of equipment and joint facilities. * 4 'The 1956 figures are not strictly comparable with previous years, due 

to the addition, in January, of 5 railways and the deletion of one. On a comparable basis, revenue tons carried in September 1955 would have been 18,200,000, revenue tons 
earned one mile 5,980 million, revenue passengers carried still 2-2 million and revenue passengers carried one mile 252 million. ("Pacific Great Eastern Railway

pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 31 companies operating in Canada representing 86 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. 

"The Canada totals for most months in 1954 and 1955 do not correspond to the sum of the provincial totals as revisions applied to the national total are not yet 
available for the provinces. The Canada totals are comparable for these two years. Provincial monthly totals for 1955, however, are not comparable with those for 
1954 due to changes by several companies in the manner of reporting new business. For 1956, the Canadian and provincial figures are comparable with each other, but are 
not strictly comparable with previous years. On a comparable basis the Canada total in December 1956 was 29% above that of December 1955. The annual figures for 
Canada and the provinces are consistent, although the 1955 data are still preliminary. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada, Life Insurance

Note. — The definition of profits before taxes is based mainly on the accounting definitions used by corporations. However, depletion charges are added back 
to net profits while Canadian dividends received are excluded from profits in order to avoid duplication. The term "profits" as used here means the total profits of all 
companies earning profits less the losses of all companies incurring losses. Estimates are based on profits as reported by a sample of all companies incorporated in Canada 
(excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives). 

(,) Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Construction. < 2 > Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Tobacco, 

Rubber, Leather, Non-Metallic minerals, Petroleum and Coal and Miscellaneous Manufacturing Industries. ^Includes Printing and Publishing and Allied Industries.

TRENDS IN ECONOMIC ACTIVITY - CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES 



The purpose of this article is to bring up to date 
an earlier article, published in the Canadian Statis- 
tical Review of July 1954, comparing economic 
developments in Canada and the United States in 
the post-war period. In that article, published when 
both countries were in the midst of a minor reces- 
sion, it was pointed out that in terms of broad aggre- 
gates developments had been similar, the differences 
being those of timing and magnitude rather than 
direction. The reasons for this similarity may perhaps 
be recapitulated here: the close links between the 
two countries, especially through the medium of 
trade, the similarity in structure, although the much 
greater relative importance of foreign trade in the 
Canadian economy has always to be borne in mind, 
the broadly similar responses to international pres- 



1. In making comparisons between the two countries 
a number of technical difficulties arise which make such 
comparisons only approximate at best. Series regarded 
for these purposes as the same, can display differences 
because of the coverage, weighting or base periods used. 
Also, for purposes of comparison, many of the series have 
been converted mechanically to a common base period, a 
procedure which can cause distortion. As a result it 
should be borne in mind that comparisons are sometimes 
imprecise. 



sures, and - by no means least in importance — the 
same internal stimuli in the form of accumulated 
needs backed by accumulated savings. 

Nearly three years later the differences in timing 
between economic developments in Canada and the 
U.S. appear to be more in the movement of compo- 
nents rather than of aggregates and the differences 
in magnitude are now more striking. The gap between 
the rates of growth in real output, which had been 
considerably higher in Canada, has widened per- 
ceptibly in the past two years. Investment in durable 
assets had been a higher proportion of G.N. P. in 
Canada than in the U.S.; this disparity is now accen- 
tuated. The rate of increase in real wages had been 
higher in Canada than in the U.S. but since 1953 
real' wages have shown the same advance in both 
countries. The pattern of recovery from recession, 
with the strategic role of consumer expenditure and 
a closely related sector - housing — , was the same 
in the two countries. With the accumulating effects 
of resource development, in the past year investment 
was a more dynamic factor in Canada than in the 
U.S. and indications are that it will continue to be in 
the current year.

Recession and Recovery 



The recession of 1953-54 lasted somewhat longer 
and was somewhat more severe in the United States 
than in Canada. In the United States, the down-turn 
began in the third quarter of 1953 and recovery in 
total output was not recorded until the fourth quarter 
of 1954, the decline in gross national product being 
3 per cent. In Canada real output fell in the first 
quarter of 1954 and was restored by the fourth. Since 
in 1954 crop production in Canada was well below 
the near record of the previous year, the movements 



of the indices of industrial production are probably 
a better indicator of the duration and extent of the 
recession in the two countries. The U.S. index at 
its post-war peak of 134 (1947-49 = 100) in the second 
quarter of 1953, fell to 124 in the third quarter of 
1954 on a seasonally adjusted basis, a drop of nearly 
8 per cent. The Canadian index fell from 250.3 
(1935-39 = 100) in the second quarter of 1953 to 241.2 
in' the second quarter of 1954, a drop of only 4 per 
cent.

Recessionary influences in North America had 
their origin in two distinct but related developments 
- namely the fall in defence expenditures in the 
United States following the truce in Korea and the 
shift from accumulation to liquidation of business 
inventories. In the United States, where falling 
defence expenditure was the main contracting 
element, national security outlays fell continuously 
from their peak of $53.3 billion (seasonally adjusted 
at annual rates) in the second quarter of 1953 to 
$40. 1 billion in the last quarter of 1954 and there- 
after stabilized at the lower level. For 1954 as a 
whole national security expenditures were $43.0 
billion, compared with $51.5 billion in 1953. The 
rate of investment in business inventories began to 
fall sharply in the summer of 1953, giving way in the 
fourth quarter tc substantial liquidation which con- 
tinued during the first three quarters of 1954. Accu- 
mulation on a very modest scale was resumed in 
the last quarter of that year. The quarterly move- 
ments in business inventories correspond very 
closely with the trend of gross national product. 



In Canada, where the decline in defence expendi- 
tures was less important, being only 9 per cent 
between 1953 and 1954 as compared with about twice 
that rate in the U.S., the major downward influence 
was the movement of business inventories. Liquida- 
tion on a substantial scale took place in the two 
mid quarters of 1954, and continued at a much lower 
rate in the fourth quarter. 

In both countries, business expenditures for plant 
and equipment were lower in 1954, the decline in 
Canada, the first to be recorded in the post-war 
period, being more pronounced than in the U.S. In 
the U.S. the reduction in purchases of machinery and 
equipment was less marked than in Canada and was i 
partially offset by higher outlays on non-residential ! 
construction. 



The pattern of recovery was essentially the same 
in both countries. A rise in consumer expenditure 
was of paramount importance in checking the decline 



in activity and preparing the way for renewed expan- 
sion. The sharp advance in housing contributed to 
the same result. Elements of strength were also 
present in the trend of government outlays other than 
defence and in the external sector. 

A decline in the rate of saving and a slight 
increase in personal incomes from 1953 to 1954 
provided the basis for a significant advance in 
consumer spending. Personal incomes rose in spite 
of the fall in national income for reasons common to 
both countries: dividends were maintained (Canada) 
or increased (the U.S.) in the face of a sharp reduc- 



tion in profits while Government transfer payments 
(chiefly unemployment insurance benefits) were 
higher. Higher wage rates helped to sustain labour 
income in the face of declining employment. In this 
situation personal incomes were fractionally higher 
and consumer expenditure rose by 5 per cent in 
Canada and 3 per cent in the U.S. In both countries, 
higher purchases of non-durables and services 
account for the increase, purchases of durables 
being about the same in the U.S. and appreciably 
lower in Canada; purchases of automobiles were 
considerably lower — 12 per cent in Canada and 5 
per cent in the U.S.

In both countries, housing activity rose steadily 
throughout 1954, making gains in this sector of 13 
per cent in the U.S. and 10 per cent in Canada. 
Legislation augmenting the flow of funds to mortgage 
markets and liberalizing the terms of mortgage credit 
were important in supporting the advance in housing. 

Continued vigorous expansion in Europe in the 
face of recession in North America had important 
implications for the course of recovery in that it 
supported markets for raw materials and contributed 
a stabilizing influence to prices, thereby reducing 
the incentive to liquidate inventories. With the value 
of U.S. merchandise exports higher by 4 per cent and 
of merchandise imports lower by 6 per cent, inter- 
national transactions were tending to support the 
demands on domestic production. While the value of 
Canada's merchandise exports fell by 5 per cent, the 
drop is more than accounted for by lower sales of 
grain in a situation of decidedly improved world 
supply. Exports to the U.S. fell by 4 per cent. With 
imports falling more than twice as much as exports, 



a larger share 'of demand was met out of domestic 
resources. 

The gathering strength of expansionary forces 
as the year ended is apparent from monthly indica- 
tors. By December 1954 the index of industrial 
production in Canada was only fractionally below 
its previous peak while in the U.S. it had moved 
half way back to the peak. Non-agricultural employ- 
ment was rising in the closing months of the year 
and sales of durables, especially automobiles, were 
turning sharply higher. 

The Expansionary Phase 

As expansion gathered momentum the difference 
in rates of change between the two countries became 
more pronounced. In 1955 Gross National Product in 
Canada rose 11 per cent above 1954 and 9 per cent 
above the peak quarter of 1953; the corresponding 
figures for the U.S. are 8 per cent and 6 per cent. 
Measured in terms of employment the advance was 
3 per cent in both countries. 



in 



In both countries, consumer expenditure, in rising 
7-8 per cent, made the major contribution to the 
increase in gross national product. The rise in pur- 
chases of durables, 13 per cent in Canada and 21 
per cent in the U.S. is particularly striking. While 
the most substantial gains were in purchases of 
automobiles (25 per cent in Canada and 37 per cent 
in the U.S.) there were decidedly larger purchases 
of furniture and appliances, probably related in part 
to the high level of housebuilding. The fact that in 
the U.S. the advance in expenditure in consumer 
durables accounted for 1/5th of the increase in 
G.N. P. testifies to the strategic role of this sector 
of the economy. 

The rise in consumer expenditure was based on 
advances in personal income of 8 per cent in Canada 
and 7 per cent in the United States, largely the result 
of gains in employment in conjunction with a con- 
tinuing advance in wage rates. It was associated 
with an increase in consumer credit outstanding in 
both countries and in the U.S. with a fall in the rate 
of saving out of disposable income. 

The increase in outlays for housing was on about 
the same scale in the two countries (23 per cent in 



the U.S. and 27 per cent in Canada). However, in 
Canada, housing continued to be an expansionary 
influence throughout the year, but in the U.S. the 
liberal credit terms which had encouraged the 
upsurge beginning early in 1954 were progressively 
modified in the latter half of 1955 and by the last 
quarter outlays on housing were falling steadily. 
The two components, consumer durables and housing, 
together contributed one-third of the increase in 
G.N. P. in the U.S. and about one-fifth in Canada. 

The improvement in market prospects and the 
sharp upturn in profits prompted a new surge in 
capital expansion, bringing outlays on plant and 
equipment close to their 1953 peak. While the rate 
of increase from 1954 to 1955 was about the same 
in the two countries (8 per cent) the upswing during 
the course of the year was more pronounced in 
Canada than in the U.S. A shift from liquidation to 
accumulation of business inventories to support the 
steadily rising level of activity was a further expan- 
sionary influence. This shift was a much more 
important element in the increase in G.N. P. in the 
United States than in Canada.

enterprises in the United States is relatively small. 




1953 



Foreign trade reflected the continued expansion 
in Western Europe and renewed expansion in North 
America. U.S. merchandise exports and imports both 
rose by 11 per cent. Canada's merchandise exports 
rose 10 per cent, but characteristically sensitive to 
changes in the level of activity, imports rose even 
more sharply, particularly in the latter part of the 
year, making for a decidedly larger deficit on trading 
account. 

While the year 1955, like the two preceding years, 
can be described as one of relatively stable prices 
so far as finished goods are concerned, signs of 



upward pressures began to appear in raw material 
markets during the course of the year. This pressure 
was more apparent in Canada where the index of 
wholesale prices rose 3 per cent between January 
and December. The extremely low level of unemploy- 
ment, 2.7 per cent of the labour force in the second 
half of the year as compared with 3.4 per cent in the 
U.S., and the rising trend of imports with the progress 
of the year also suggest that demand was moving 
forward at a pace that pressed on domestic resources. 
In the U.S., the downturn in housing and in consumer 
durables in the fourth quarter contributed to an easing 
in demand and a slackening rate of increase in G.N. P. 



IV 



The Investment Boom 

In 1956, faced with strong domestic and foreign 
demand, Canada embarked on the most ambitious 
programme for the expansion of plant and equipment 
of the post-war period. With expansionary influences 
pervading almost every other major category of 
demand, Gross National Product rose 11 per cent in 
value and some 7 per cent in volume, a remarkable 
increase in view of the small margin of idle re- 
sources to be drawn into use. Business expenditures 
in plant and equipment were likewise a key factor 
in the U.S., but with a smaller rate of increase and 
mixed trends present in some other sectors of the 
economy, the increase in Gross National Product 
was 5 1/2 per cent in value, of which about half 
represents an increase in volume. Thus the growing 
disparity between rates of increase in Canada and 
the U.S. is the striking development of the past year. 

With an increase of one-third in Canada and one- 
fifth in the U.S., business outlays for plant and 
equipment were of paramount importance in shaping 
the course of economic events for the year. For 
Canada they represented 17 per cent of G.N. P. com- 
pared with 14 per cent in 1955. (The Canadian 
investment programme in 1956 and the prospects for 
1957 were described in an article in the February 
issue of the Canadian Statistical Review.) Outlays 
were rising from quarter to quarter in both countries. 

In Canada, unlike the U.S., the value of residen- 
tial construction was higher in 1956 than in 1955, 
even though starts were falling sharply, (on a 
seasonally adjusted basis), in the second half of the 
year. The year to year increase was 5 per cent, most 
of which represents higher prices. The declining 
trend in Canada, like the earlier decline in the U.S., 
was related to the limited supply and higher cost of 
mortgage funds and possibly also to more selective 
demand following the high rates of building in the 
two previous years. Residential construction in the 
U.S. was lower by 8 per cent in value and 13 per 
cent in volume. 

Personal incomes again rose more in Canada 
than in the U.S., - 10 per cent as compared with 6 
per cent. Consumer expenditures were higher by 8 
per cent and 4 1/2 per cent and in both countries 
spending did not keep pace with the rise in dispos- 
able income. However, the pattern of advance in the 
consumer sector, broadly similar in 1955, differed 
in 1956, the principal disparity being in respect of 
purchases of automobiles which were higher by 8 
per cent in Canada but reduced by 15 per cent in 
the U.S. This decline was especially marked in the 
second and third quarters. 

The strength of expansionary forces in Canada 
was particularly evident in the external sector. Mer- 



chandise exports again increased in value by 10 
per cent but imports rose by 21 per cent following 
a rise of 15 per cent in the previous year. A 50 per 
cent increase in sales of wheat, following three 
successive declines, was an important element in 
the rise in exports, but sales of new and traditional 
export products were for the most part higher, with 
the significant exception of lumber. Iron and steel 
products accounted for about two-thirds of the in- 
crease in imports and there were marked increases 
in imports of non-ferrous and non-metallic mineral 
products, reflecting the heavy demands of the invest- 
ment programme and larger outlays on consumer 
durables. The result of these trends was a more than 
threefold increase in the deficit on visible trade. 

The pattern of price movements in the two coun- 
tries was remarkably similar. The over-all price 
increase was about 3 per cent, with the upward 
pressure more apparent in the investment goods 
sector. The rise in prices of machinery and equip- 
ment and in construction costs ranged from 4 to 7 
per cent; export and import prices were up about 3 
per cent and consumer prices about 2 per cent. 

Prices have been influenced by the trend of costs 
as well as by the growing pressure of demand during 
the investment boom. Between 1953 and 1956 average 
hourly earnings in manufacturing in both countries 
rose by 11-12 per cent, which gives a rough indica- 
tion of the gains in output per man-hour that would 
have been required to keep labour costs stable. Past 
experience suggests that output per man-hour does 
not usually improve at such a rate when an economy 
is operating close to capacity. That prices in Canada 
should have risen no more than in the U.S., despite 
the pace of expansion in this country, is primarily 
attributable to the huge addition to supply from 
imports, especially in the hard pressed investment 
goods sector. The rise in the external value of the 
Canadian dollar, associated with heavy capital 
inflow, has also been a factor. 

As the year 1956 ended, Gross National Product 
was still rising in both countries, with higher prices 
a somewhat more important element in the increase 
than in previous quarters. Business expenditures for 
plant and equipment continued to rise and in the U.S. 
were expected to remain at about the same level in 
the first quarter of 1957. In Canada, the annual 
survey of investment intentions for 1957 indicated a 
moderate increase in outlays over the most recently 
recorded rates. In both countries, housing was de- 
clining in the last quarter of the year. While in 
Canada the rates of increase in G _ oss National 
Product remained fairly even throughout the year, in 
the U.S., with readjustments taking place between 
individual industries, the pattern was one of accel- 
erating advance from quarter to quarter.
